Hunter Biden is ‘innocent,’ ‘wrongly pursued,’ according to his mom

Who would have thought that First Lady Jill Biden would sound just like former President Donald Trump?

In a recent NBC interview, Biden said that her son Hunter Biden was “innocent” and “wrongly pursued” by the FBI and law enforcement despite ample evidence that has come to light and been reported about the three-plus year investigation.

“Everybody and their brother has investigated Hunter,” Jill Biden said in an interview released Friday. “They keep at it, and at it, and at it. I know that Hunter is innocent. I love my son, and I will keep looking forward.”

The allegations that have been made against Hunter Biden include tax evasion, unethical business dealings with Russian, Ukrainian, and Chinese companies, and lying on a gun application. He is also a presumably recovering drug and sex addict.

A discrepancy

Jill Biden’s comments differ from those made in another recent interview by her husband Joe Biden, who seemed to admit that his son at least broke gun laws by saying on an ATF application that he was not a drug user.

“He came along and said, ‘By the way, this thing about a gun, I didn’t know anything about it.’ But it turns out that when he made an application to purchase a gun, what happened was, you get asked the question, ‘Are you on drugs or do you use drugs?’ and he said no,” Biden explained. “He wrote about saying no in his book.”

Federal agents have reportedly had enough evidence for months to charge Hunter Biden on the gun application crime and various tax crimes, but the final decision on charges will be made by a top Justice Department official in Delaware.

Being only weeks from a consequential midterm election, it is unlikely that charges will be brought until after November 8, if ever.

Political pressure?

Surely after decades as a politician in Delaware, the Bidens know this official who is making the decision about whether to charge their son.

While Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss was appointed to his post by former President Donald Trump, he was appointed to the case by Attorney General Merrick Garland.

The political pressure that the Bidens and their friends could put on the Justice Department not to charge their son seems immense.

But if they do so, or even appear to be doing so, they will have to contend with public outrage over the perception that Hunter is receiving special treatment and that the Biden’s may be hiding Joe Biden’s involvement in the corruption.
